I opted for speed and decided to take US-65 north instead of AR-7. US-65 was still pretty scenic, and had it's share of ups and downs, twists and turns, but the GPS software said it would be faster to go that way.

We did a long 420 mile day, because we wanted to get further north and away from the heat. It worked. 62 degrees here in Columbia, MO this morning.

Unhappy Tire Woes Today

Essentially been off the grid the last three nights with very weak Internet service. Today we arrived at our destination and as I was setting up noticed my left front tire looked wacky. Sure was, the right front was almost as bad, but the two rear look fine. The major wear is on the inside of the left and outside of the right.

I don't recall hitting anything that could have knocked the axles out of alignment, so I wonder what could have caused this?

I'll try to find an RV repair in the morning and get some new tires.

Tire Woes Solved

It was tread separation and wear out that caused the near failure yesterday. Found a great tire store in Scottsbluff, NE, Dales Tires. They changed them one at a time by rolling Daisy up on blocks. No jacking.

Also found a good RV service center, Floyd's. They're a Good Sam recommended place and checked out the trailer axle for me.

We were out on the road again by noon. Drove to Douglas, WY today. The threat of severe weather and high water on the Platt River kind of shortened our side trips today. We'll be in Gillette tomorrow.

Thanks for all the "Thanks" on my post yesterday.

Randy

I updated my blog this morning to discuss all our travel days to Gillette. We are now on the ground in Gillette. Sitting in the IBT meeting at the moment.
